Engaging program

We have built the theme around People with the key words Respect. Trust. Challenge. We explore the idea that organisations and therefore boards and management are social systems. 

  • Where good culture, ethical conduct, effective leadership and collaboration drive trust. 
  • Where nous, business intelligence and strong governance, courage and candour generate respect.
  • Where a culture of open dissent enables new thinking, cognitive diversity, independence, challenge and innovation to create long-term value. 

Recent corporate failures had their roots in how good governance practice, ethics and culture, had drifted away from the people who drive organisations. This is a timely opportunity for you to hear from international and national thought leaders on rebuilding trust and good governance through sound human-centred culture, insightful leadership and immersive strategy.

'As a conference speaker I want to deliver value to my audience — the topic needs to be right and the conference organiser needs to refine the brief right up until the day of conference to make sure the speakers hit the mark. Governance Institute made sure National Conference 2018 delivered and I’m sure National Conference 2019 will be as meaningful. It was a total bonus that I found so many in my network attending — they helped me meet a lot more members and discover new ideas.'
